Course Description

Spectroscopic Techniques - Advanced

The Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Spectroscopic Techniques was developed based on an analysis of the importance of the pharmaceutical and related industries in Ireland and within the South-East region and also using information generated from the Wales Ireland Network for Scientific Skills (WINSS) Scientific Survey from a large number of pharmaceutical/biotechnology, medical device and food companies based in the South East of Ireland. One of the outputs from this survey indicated that 35% of the companies surveyed require training in UV-Vis Spectroscopy while 33% require Near/Mid/Far FTIR training. Recognising this demand, the Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Spectroscopic Techniques was devised. This module is a part-time Level 9 programme and specifically addresses this recognised skills deficit by providing advanced level training.

This course places a strong emphasis on the professional development of the graduate and is aimed at students already working in an industrial environment. Such a qualification will enable and facilitate career progression for graduates in the region. The certificate programme can be taken singly as a stand-alone module worth 10 credits at level 9, or if the student wishes they can use these credits towards the Postgraduate Diploma/MSc (WD 519/520).
